    Rising conservative activist Candace Owens criticized over Hitler comments

    A rising conservative activist and Trump supporter is facing criticism after a video of her defending nationalism and differentiating it from Adolf Hitler’s policies went viral.

    Candace Owens is the communications director of Turning Point USA, a conservative advocacy group. She made the comments at a December event in the U.K. to promote the launch of Turning Point UK, a British offshoot of the group.

    Buzzfeed reported on the video Friday.

    In the video, Owens was asked about nationalism in Western politics.

    “I actually don’t have any problems at all with the word ‘nationalism,'” Owens said. “I think that the definition gets poisoned by elitists that actually want globalism.

    “Whenever we say nationalism, the first thing people think about, at least in America, is Hitler,” Owens said.“He was a national socialist. But if Hitler just wanted to make Germany great and have things run well, OK, fine.”

    COMMENT:-

    Hey, there were a lot of good people in the German government under the Nazis.

    I mean they were good to their kids and didn't beat their wives, or stuff like that, and they went to church regularly.

    Not only that but Adolf Hitler didn't cheat on his wife - not even ONCE throughout his whole marriage.

    PS - The number of posts before someone says that Ms. Owens didn't say what she said because it was Buzzfeed who reported on it is estimated (at the time of posting) to be less than 10.

    Yikes. That's the kind of thing you google just to make sure it's not Onion or Borowitz.

    But sure enough it happened.

    She and other members of the far right are trying to rehabilitate nationalism.

    The only problem is that Hitler used nationalism to justify the worst crimes of his regime.

    I guess. But it seems to me that nationalism is either good or bad regardless of hitler.

    Yep, and her biggest sin was saying was a globalist, not a nationalist - inflaming the composite fury of the globalist press and commentating class.

    Here's what she actually said:
    I actually don't have any problems at all with the word "nationalism." I think that the definition gets poisoned by elitists that actually want globalism.
    Globalism is what I don't want. Whenever we say "nationalism," the first thing people think about, at least in America, is Hitler. You know, he was a national socialist, but if Hitler just wanted to make Germany great and have things run well, OK, fine. The problem is that he wanted — he had dreams outside of Germany.
    He wanted to globalize. He wanted everybody to be German, everybody to be speaking German, everybody to look a different way. That's not, to me, that's not nationalism
    . In thinking about how we could go bad down the line, I don't really have an issue with nationalism. I really don't. I think that it's OK.

    No, she said what you say she did, and . . .
    She actually said a little more than your quote, which changes the context significantly.

    Was the woman actually talking about Hitler? If so, why the hell was she? Why the hell does anyone need, in 2019, to talk about Hitler? Has enough not already been said about him?
